I believe VAC did a reissue years go but could be wrong, contact VAC and ask.

Bill's company website is here: [url]http://musictechnology.com/about-us.html[/url]
When you call, you may or may not get him on the phone directly, but if you explain your situation and ask for him to call you back to discuss, I have no doubt he will. He is a very nice guy to boot. You are welcome to use my name, not that it will make much difference, but he's well regarded and knows the high end industry --not just from the work bench.
Good luck. I actually dropped my stuff off there because we took a two week road trip while moving. So, I got to see the shop and get a little face time with Bill. Give him my regards if you use him. Also, get a sense of timing--he's busy, but once he gets on it, he does the work quickly.
Thanks Opus III , That's what I'm trying to do is to avoid shipping , we had a great service tech. in the Birmingham, Al. area but he has retired ! Saw some of your threads about Audio Research, have gotten great service from them, wish the nine's (re-issued) were made by them . Thanks Huntingsnapcap
Latest on Model 9 service : Contacted Audio Classic's and they suggested going back to VAC , talked to VAC's service tech and he was very helpful and nice. Sarasoto, Florida is as close as any other area that I would go for service so I going to give them a try ( might take a short vacation and drive them down ) . Thanks For everybody's help
